I'm once again running 13.1 miles and asking you to donate to Safe Horizon, two events that have scant relation to one another.
Safe Horizon is a non-profit organization that helps crime victims, domestic violence survivors, and other vulnerable populations. If you choose to donate, here is where you money will go:
$16 helps us answer one call to our 24/7 domestic violence hotline
$35 means we can change a lock for a survivor of domestic violence
$50 provides access to showers, laundry, and computers for a homeless youth for a year
$100 provides a day of childcare while a parent is in court testifying about abuse
$148 gives a family at a domestic violence shelter a ‘starter kit’ containing the essentials they will need to start over
In the past I've had a fundraising goal of $3000. I'm being more modest this time because, if all goes well, I will be asking for more donations this year for Safe Horizon as I run my first marathon to support them!
Have a 2020 full of happiness, health, and helping others!
